In Case You've Wondered

My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.

If you're here for the stories, I started another blog: scratchingforchange.blogspot.com

One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.

I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.

Neanderthal Retaliation

At the last of his term, Obama removed the filtering of the NSA, and allowed all intelligence agencies access to raw intelligence, without any vetting by the agency with the responsibility for preventing the data to be misused, or leaked by those without the clearance.

While I've been suspicious of the NSA, at least the information was bottled up tighter than it now is. Private information collected without warrants was not available to just about anyone in law enforcement. Now, not only are private citizens at risk, government employees, with loyalties to others - or being paid to spy by anyone without the U.S. interests at hear - can subvert operations, slant the news with illegal leaks to unscrupulous media outlets, and the ability of the government to function is reduced due to the tedious effort to plug the leads.

Personally, I think the courts will be too slow to solve this problem, and the same goes for investigations. This slowness will infuriate some with not only a strong loyalty to the United States, they'll have the power of neanderthal retaliation on those caught misusing classified information.

For those willing to take such chances in the future, I advise you to realize all the money in the world won't hide you from those with the power, and resources, to find you. If you're lucky, you'll be prosecuted, but I'm betting some of those coming for you won't be willing to take the time.

Maybe It's Time

I read a news report about a college where many students want areas that don't allow people with white skin to have access. In my opinion, it's just another sign the too many university level students are not serious about their education. That, and too many have a sense of entitlement.

Maybe it's time for all public funding of universities to end. That, and the elimination of government backed student loans. Too much of it is wasted, those graduating are too many times only barely more functional than a good high school student, and with the liberal indoctrination, too many are obtaining degrees without a practical application.

Personally, I think it is. Considering student loan debt is over a trillion, collecting is hard, too many will take too much of their life to repay, and it's obvious the universities are only in it for the money, the money pit of college education shouldn't be the responsibility of the taxpayer.

I know many will disagree, but that's fine. They can allocate more of their income toward the education of others, and leave mine alone. I have to deal with enough dumbasses daily. Funding a constant stream of dumbasses is a waste of tax dollars.

I Think He's Crossed the Line

John McCain, according to news reports, is criticizing Trump's presidency, while overseas. While he has a right to his opinion, deliberately undermining the President in foreign countries is walking on the thin line between opinion, and sedition.

Personally, I see McCain as a career politician, who was groomed for politics by his family, and those in his party that like to orchestrate the control of the United States. His loyalty is to something other than the United States, and his current actions indicate he's willing to avoid constitutional processes to promote his personal agenda.

I don't know how this will turn out, but McCain's brand of Republican politics is not favored by the majority of those affiliated with the party. I feel his days are numbered as a political figure, his arrogance will lead to shameful behavior on his part, and his legacy will be further tarnished.

The Purge Ahead

It's apparent the Trump Administration has operatives making an effort to hamper his presidency, and are willing to commit crimes to achieve their goal. I'm sure these people will now be hunted, some will be charged, and many will find they not only lost their job, their pension will be lost also. It's time for this to start. Let the purging commence.

Lying, Thieving Sacks of Excrement

The media, and most in the government, fail to pound out the losses anyone not working for the federal government realized in the last eight years. Double digit inflation, tripled insurance costs, stagnant wages, and increased regulations decreased the take home for those in the private sector, and due to the devalued dollar, the decrease in spending can only be described as deplorable.

So, the lying, thieving sacks of crap that live in D.C., or peddle their daily manure, are still failing to realize the slow simmer is beyond the point of civil discourse. It's now about survival, and if it takes firing 50% of federal workers to increase my salary, then that needs to happen by sunset this evening. Either they fix it, or the angry taxpayers will.
